       qli — Query Language Interpreter


       qli  [  -a application_file]  [ -b buffers]  [ -i startup_file]  [ -n ]  [ -p password]  [
       -t ]  [ -u username]  [ -v ]  [ -x ]  [ -y ]  [ -z ]


       This manual page documents briefly the qli command.

       This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
       not  have  a  (free) manual page.  Instead, it has non-free documentation you can get from
       InterBase (Borland) or FireBird project sites; see at the end of the document.

       qli is an interpreter for a query language on Firebird and Interbase databases.

       qli is mainly provide for backwards compatibility for Interbase  4.0  and  3.3  and  isn't
       supported  anymore  at the moment.  This manpage has been reconstructed from the source of
       the qli tool and is likely to contain mistakes. If you find any,  please  report  them  as
